Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Discount Offer Rejected

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are often given big time accolades for their philanthropy but apparently they don't like paying the going rate to American businesses when they are seeking a room to rent during their many travels. According to a report from MSNBC's "The Scoop" when the Jolie-Pitt brood hit Texas they needed a place to stay and they wanted a little luxury and pampering.

According to the report the brood wanted a 2,600 square foot luxury rental at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort and Spa, near Austin, Texas that goes for about two grand a night. But as Pitt and company didn't want to fork over that kind of coin for privacy and luxury they made a counter offer. $3,000 for the month or a paltry $100 per night.

Michael K does the math and figures out that that is about a 95% discount. The offer was rejected and the brood finally wound up renting a private home. It was reported earlier that the couple rented a home from the WWE wrestler "the Undertaker". Apparently he could slip the Pitt-Jolie discount into his budget.

Plus it has to be better than that stuffy old hotel. It even has a wrestling ring in it for the family squabbles. This report has all of the details. "The best part of the house is a separate gym area with a real [World Wrestling Entertainment] ring in it,” contractor Ron Charles, who worked on the home’s construction, tells Life & Style. “I’m sure Brad and the kids horse around in it.”
